If you're Canadian, you know exactly what to expect from Swiss Chalet & that's pretty much what you get at this location. It's a rotisserie chicken place that also has ribs & roast beef. The food is decent & reasonably priced, especially if you go...More

Love Swiss Chalet although I must admit I find the one in Cobourg mediocre at best. Food was fine and service good but the restaurant itself pretty bog standard with nothing of note at all. Was convenient for lunch but nothing more.

This is an older location that could badly do with a face list but you get exactly what you expect from Swiss Chalet - great chicken at a reasonable price

Hostess appeared to have had the ice cream fall off her cone but the wait staff were excellent. Food was abundant, hot and delicious. Very fast service.

Do they take reservations. We are going to be in town and would like to have dinner before we leave Sunday but don't want a long wait making it late getting home.

Since our doors first opened in 1954, Canadian families have been coming back to Swiss Chalet generation after generation. Our rotisserie ovens only accept fresh (never frozen), grain-fed, Canadian Grade A chickens, because quality is all we know. So what will it be? A Quarter Chicken with fries?
